Try Not To Laugh During The Trailer For 50 Cent’s Cancer Drama ‘Things Fall Apart’

Rapper/actor/faux cancer patient 50 Cent really wants to be taken seriously as an actor, and he’s willing to go to such lengths as losing scary amounts of weight and crying on screen like some girl. Unfortunately, it looks like his project-selecting abilities might be a little lacking, judging from this trailer for his latest movie Things Fall Apart. A disturbingly svelte 50 Cent isn’t the only notable thing about this trailer – you also have Dr. Ray Liotta and Mario “Somehow The Worst Actor In New Jack City” Van Peebles in the cast.

The buzz on the trailer is that it’s, uh, not good (The Playlist calls it “hilariously awful”). And yeah, it’s pretty bad, but the movie seems more boring than hilariously bad to me. Which would pretty much be par for the course for 50 Cent.

Do you like this story?

    Shenanigans! 50 is well known for being a prankster and this clearly is one of those pranks. That trailer can’t be real.

    “I thought he was sick. Why is he celebrating?” Phenomenal.

    How did Lynn Whitfield (“A Thin Line between Love and Hate,” “The Josephine Baker Story”) not get listed in the trailer? Surely she’s a better actor than Peebles, got more thespian cred than 50, and is at least on par with Liotta. WTH?
